Industry First: VistaJet Abolishes Positioning Fees Globally
To free its Program customers from expensive ferry fees, company will never charge them for positioning an aircraft anywhere in the world.
- Positioning fees can cost customers an additional five-figures on each flight.
- Other business aviation companies charge for positioning fees when leaving their limited service areas.
- The announcement is a result of VistaJet's $2.5bn investment in its global fleet and proprietary backend operations technology.
- Company took on 15 new business jets in 2016, taking the total fleet to over 70, to offer one-way pricing around the globe.
- Follows 100,000th VistaJet flight record.
LONDON, May 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VistaJet, the first and only global aviation company, announced today that it has abolished hourly ferry flight fees for new Program customers globally. Uniquely in the industry, the commitment applies no matter where in the world a customer is flying to or from. The move signals a significant commitment to VistaJet's mission to be the first operator to offer a truly global service. Its customers now have complete freedom when booking, without bearing the burden of paying a ferry flight hourly rate for an aircraft to return to a home base or service area, and enjoying truly transparent pricing.

Positioning fees have traditionally been a frustrating and unexpected cost for business aviation clients. Currently, most companies in the sector make their customers pay for the cost of returning the empty plane to its home airport or service area after a flight is completed. Depending on location, this can add tens of thousands to the overall cost of a flight. For example, if a customer stepped onboard a London based aircraft towards Australia, the cost of returning the aircraft to its home base could add more than $100,000 to the overall cost of the journey.
The revolutionary new offering has been made possible by the $2.5bn investment the company has made to grow its fleet to a global scale, as well as its effort to establish a global customer base through its 10 sales offices around the globe. The company's unique business model, built on removing the notion of a home base for its aircraft, means customers only pay for the time they are in the air: when a VistaJet Program customer books a flight, VistaJet will simply move the nearest plane to pick them up.
Unlike business jet charter, VistaJet owns every one of the over 70 silver and red aircraft in its fleet, so customers know what will greet them on the tarmac anytime, anywhere in the world. The company has invested in an industry leading operations centre in the European country of Malta, and created an innovative infrastructure with the capacity to manage global flights 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It has also established offices on 5 continents, managing flights to over 1,600 airports in 187 countries to date.
Chairman and Founder Thomas Flohr said:
"When you call a taxi, you don't worry about paying for its journey to you. Today's entrepreneur or business executive will be flying to America one week, Asia or South America the next, and Europe in between, so it's become critical to offer them a truly global service. The sustained investment we've made for the past 13 years has been calculated to ensure we can offer our customers something completely ground-breaking: one way pricing around the globe.
At VistaJet, we challenge ourselves every day to offer the best experience in the industry. So along with knowing that our customers will only pay for the time they are in the air, when they fly with us they know that they will receive the very best service, with everything tailored to their specific needs."
VistaJet is the first and only global aviation company. On its fleet of silver and red business jets, VistaJet has flown corporations, governments and private clients to 187 countries worldwide. Founded in 2004 by Thomas Flohr, the company pioneered an innovative business model where customers pay only for the hours they fly, free of the responsibilities and asset risks linked to aircraft ownership. VistaJet's signature Program service offers customers a bespoke subscription of flight hours on its fleet of mid and long range jets, to fly them anywhere and at any time.

CrownBio Launches New Humanized Target Model for Immunotherapy26.4.2018 14:00 | Pressmeddelande
SAN DIEGO, April 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crown Bioscience, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crown Bioscience International (TWSE:6554) and a global drug discovery and development services company providing translational platforms to advance oncology, inflammation, cardiovascular and metabolic disease research, enhances its existing portfolio of humanized drug target models (HuGEMM(TM)) by launching a new transgenic CD3E model to advance development of immuno-oncology (I/O) drugs. Novel therapeutic T-cell redirecting antibodies, including bispecific T cell engagers, show great promise in effectively treating cancer. However, development of these drugs is hampered by a lack of in vivo models that can accurately recapitulate human specific responses. CrownBio addresses this need with their new CD3E transgenic model that was validated in collaboration with and developed by NBRI of Nanjing University. The CD3E model expresses the human form of CD3E and is phenotypically normal with levels
